LOCHSA RIVER RAFTING
The Lochsa River is one of the best white water rivers in the world. The Lochsa is a designated National Wild and Scenic River that originates on the western slope of The Bitterroot Mountains, far into the wilds of the Clearwater National Forest. The river quickly gains momentum as it cascades downstream and becomes a river that challenges boaters with countless “big water rapids”. With close to 40 class IV rapids in our 20-mile “day run”, and 10 more in our “Epic” trips, every trip down the Lochsa is a true whitewater experience.
Our Riley Flats River Camp is the perfect place to warm up and relax while the crew prepares a hot meal that will satisfy any diet. Gourmet meals, food from scratch, are all part of the Zoo Town Surfer experience.
Our guides are seasoned river professionals and will enhance your white-water experience while maintaining the overall safety of your trip. We only hire kayakers and committed river folks here at ZTS which means one thing: quality guides who have an intimate relationship with the rivers we play and operate on.
When you hear your guide shout “paddle forward!” you know that all the thrills and excitement of the Lochsa River is waiting for you just a few paddle strokes downstream. Prepare yourself!
STANDARD ONE DAY TRIP
The Standard One Day Trip covers over 20 miles of the Lochsa River. This is our most popular raft trip on the Lochs River. After floating the “middle 10”, we stop for a delicious lunch at Riley Flats, our private riverside camp. Once your food has settled, it’s time to get back in the raft and crush the big rapids that are waiting for you in the Goat Range.
Includes all necessary gear
EPIC ONE DAY TRIP
This river adventure is not for the faint of heart. The Epic One-Day trip covers over 30 miles of classic Idaho white water and includes rapids with names like Vortex, Fake Onno’s, Eye Opener, Triple Hole, Linebacker, and Ten Pin Alley. We provide a snack halfway and delicious lunch at Riley Flats, our private riverside camp.*
